Expecting the concert to start at 6:00pm, I reached by 5:45. By then the concert had already started and I presume, she had sung a varnam. We seated as she was starting mayamalavagaula. The first thing I noticed was the evident strain in her voice. This continued till the end, by on the whole she managed it very well.  Tulasi dala mulache had neraval and swara ( neraval at saketapuravasuni was interesting). The first alapana case at ranjani and I thought this was better of the rest in terms of alapana, despite a power interruption in the middle. GNB krithi was sung well with neraval at kanchadala lochani with nice set of swaram.

After the filler , she started a detailed alapana in bhairavi. The beginning and the initial stages were very good, but I thought it lost the steam in the middle. Having said that, the surprice choice of Purandara Dasa krithi was a welcome change and she did a good neraval and swara for the main piece of the day.

Pallavi was in the offing, since she did not give time for a tani avartanam after bhairavi. A couple of kritis, chintamani kriti to cover all the trinities, and a fast paced mA kELara wasnt really necessary. Sankarabharanam alapana also started beautifully, and was decent.  But, the tanam was superb and was acknowledged by the applauses from the audience ( this probably was the only occasion where the audience reacted in the middle). Pallavi with theusual trikalam was done well. Ragamalika swarams came in a continuous one take form, with no separate violin reply. 

Neyveli Narayanan and KV Gopalakrishna did a good tani, shortish though. They were very impressive through out and showed a lot of coordination and understanding. Nalina Mohan was adequate, and I particularly liked her return swara singing for the bhairavi.

Post main had a couple of tamil kritis and a thillana. Overall a good concert with some good selection of krithis.
